THE POINSETT BRIDE EXPERIENCE DOESN’T END ON THE SALES FLOOR – IT CONTINUES IN THE ALTERATIONS DEPARTMENT.
We have a team of talented and skilled alterations team who work magic in-house.
EVERY FITTING APPOINTMENT YOU’LL NEED:
Depending on the dress style, approximately 3 fittings are recommended. Fitting appointments typically start 2 months prior to the wear date (whether for bridal portraits or your wedding day). Please bring any special undergarment desired for these fittings, as well as shoes.
THE PERFECT FIT:
At the 1st fitting, your Seamstress-Designer will adjust and pin the dress in all the right places, usually around the bodice and hips.
To ensure the hem length is to your specifications please bring the shoes you plan to wear to your fitting. We want every layer to be just right – in fact, perfect for your wedding day.
If your dress has a train, a bustle is definitely recommended. This prevents the train from dragging during the reception. A Seamstress-Designer will discuss the different bustle options with you.
Bustle options include:
- American Style: created with clear buttons and loops, lifting the train over to the proper area on the back
- French Style: created with multiple ribbons, tied under the dress for a delicate fold
- Original Style: created to suit the dress style or the bride’s vision.
QUALITY & STEAM
Your dress is checked and then checked again for all trims, lace, beads etc. Only then is the dress steamed and hung on a bust form to maintain the perfect shape ready for pick up.
